13 Nvu

Nvu isn't available neither in the official Ubuntu repositories nor from Automatix, but fortunately backports.org has an Nvu package for Debian Etch which works on Ubuntu Feisty Fawn, too. It can be found on http://backports.org/debian/pool/main/n/nvu/. Go to that address with your browser and download the latest Nvu package, e.g. nvu_1.0final-0bpo1_i386.deb. In the Firefox download window, select Open with GDebi Package Installer (default):

A Package Installer window comes up. Click on the Install Package button to install Nvu:

You must provide your password to start the installation:

The installation begins:

Afterwards, you can close the Package Installer window:

Nvu is now installed as well.

I'm not sure about the rest of you web developers out there, but a bad FTP client costs me tons of time. I've always used FileZilla under Windows and it has served me almost flawlessly, but when switching to Ubuntu, gFTP was all I could find. Needless to say, gFTP is completely unsatisfactory -- no offense to those working on it -- but I simply cannot get anything done with it's clumsy interface and many bugs (you can't even drag and drop!).

Luckily, as of 9-8-07, FileZilla 3.0.0 has been released and a Linux version is available. It seems to work perfectly! Drag and drop, split folder/file view, site manager (it even imported my sites from the Windows version of FileZilla 2), and more. I am impressed and ever so thankful! Back to work!

Happy FTing,
